    Browser Compatibility

    What could this site have done to make their site work in Firefox?

    It is fine in IE but the navigation is all awry in FF.

    A lot of times javascript will render differently in Firefox like that.

    Investigate standardised menu techniques from http://www.cssmenus.co.uk/

    There are problems in Chrome too.

    Try to avoid IE dependent javascript.

    In fact it's the same in Safari, and only a little better in Opera.

    Definitely looks like there is some IE specific javascript going on.

    Try to use a public library for JS, like mootools or jquery - they take the browser incompatibilites (for the most part) pain out. There are many plugins for the aforementioned libraries for fancy drop down navigation menus etc. just google "jquery drop down navigation"
